Where it all began...

Early in 1972, I was in the East Ham branch of the Co-op when I spotted this beauty. I believe it was 72p, which I had to beg from my parents. I knew of T.Rex from classroom chatter & might even have already owned Jeepster & Telegram Sam on 7" singles, but this was my first 'pop' LP. Unbeknown to me at the time, it was a just a watered down version of the Fly release 'The Best of T.Rex' with the hit title track added & housed in a hideous sleeve, but it was with this album that my black & white life became colour. All roads lead back to this moment.
